Présentation de l'éditeur :

In 1760 no polity in the world was democratic in any way we wouldnow recognize. In 1995 there were democratic states on everycontinent and in every region. The struggle to create, sustain, andentrench democratic political systems is one of the centralnarratives of modernity. Democratization is the firsttextbook comprehensively to survey, explore and engage with thisstory.

In Part I, the introduction to the book as a whole, an overviewand elaboration is offered of the key explanatory models ofdemocratization; this section also refines the description of aregime′s democratic status and explores the models and strategiesof comparative analysis used in the book. While each of thesubsequent twenty chapters can stand on their own, they have allbeen framed by a shared engagement with and discussion of thedynamics of democratization set out here.

Part II surveys the course of democratization in the West from1760 to 1989, examining both the early breakthroughs of the Frenchand American Revolutions and the inter–war crisis of Europeandemocracy. The post–war era is covered by discussions of the impactof World War II, the democratic revolutions in Southern Europe andthe struggle of the American Civil Rights movement.

Part III examines the experience of Latin America and Asia. TheLatin American case is covered in two chapters stretching from the1930′s to the 1990′s. In the Asia section the comparativetrajectories of Asia′s two giants – China and India – arecontrasted with the experience of East Asia′s original tigers(Taiwan and South Korea) and more recent industrializing states(Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia).

In Part IV the relative weakness of democratization in Africaand the Middle East is interrogated. Surveys of the Middle East andsub–Saharan Africa are complemented by individual case studies(Israel–Palestine and South Africa) and a synoptic examination ofthe relationship between Islamic culture, society anddemocracy.

In Part V, the democratic revolutions of 1989 and theiraftermath are examined in chapters on Eastern Europe and Russia.The enmeshment of these processes of democratization withnationalist struggles are highlighted in a study of formerCzechoslovakia and Yugoslavia while the particular course of theremaining socialist states is examined in a chapter onVietnam.

Finally, the conclusion both reviews the regional variations indemocratization and considers the pressing question of howdemocracies once created can be sustained.

Democratization will provide students and teachers withan invaluable and engaging resource for examining the complex fateof democratic politics across the world.
